Andre D’Rozario

The pandemic offered a chance for everyone to slow down, and I’ve observed more of my friends exploring the natural side of Singapore. In the last few years, I’ve found myself trying to pay attention to the different birds in my neighbourhood. My hope for Singapore and Singaporeans is to develop a greater appreciation for the little natural spaces we have, and to increase our collective respect and protection for the other residents of the island that were here before and alongside us. For my artwork, I've chosen to cast a spotlight on the Asian koel, with its bright red eyes and signature calls—the bird that you either love or hate to hear in the early mornings. While many (including myself) have never seen it in person before, it’s a bird I strongly associate with our local soundscape.

The concept of unity was my inspiration for this piece. I hope that my drawing will spread a positive message to all who see it.

I love seeing art murals on the walls of heartland flats. They reflect the uniqueness of each neighbourhood, with distinct imprints of their own identity, and allow locals and foreigners alike to get a glimpse of Singapore. They are also examples of communities, including those with special needs, coming together to create and enjoy what art mean to them. Art plays a very important part in our lives because we all use it to express ourselves.

My hope for Singapore is for us be a nation that cherishes our little ones and paves the way for them to follow their dreams and pursue their passions. May we shower our children with love, support, and encouragement, and guide them attentively through any mistakes they make or failures they may experience in life. Through doing this, in time we will see an empowered generation that rises upward tall and strong like the Supertrees, all shining brightly for the future of Singapore!
